Final Cut Pro 5 export to Compressor annoyance solved

Tip on exporting to Compressor from FCP 5 By rpmute

Solved a small annoyance with Compressor and Final Cut Pro 5 during the export process.
I had my project sequences organized in a bin, which I double-clicked in order to give them their own tab in the Final Cut Pro browser window.  Ok?  Just for a little bit cleaner organization.  Nothing strange yet.  When I decided to export "Sequence 1" to Compressor, I selected the clip (in this new tab I created) and went to the file menu to export to Compressor, and I got a "No media selected!" error message.

Apparently, the sequence you are exporting MUST be in the main Browser tab (the one with the same name as your project file), and not in a separate tab made from an opened bin, named, for instance, "sequences".  I closed the "sequences" tab I created and selected my sequence ("Sequence 1") in the main Browser tab and went to export, and it worked just fine.

Just a little tip to save you some annoyance after a long day of editing.

I've been a lifetime AV geek and usually take on more projects than I know what to do with, ultimately finishing less than half of them but coming up with a wealth of useful info for everyone else.
